Over time, many individuals can develop bothersome skin laxity along their inner thighs as a result of aging, significant weight loss, or bariatric surgery. Loose, sagging skin around the inner thighs can affect how clothing fits and produce an unflattering silhouette. Rigorous exercise may help firm the muscles, but correcting excess skin typically requires surgery. An inner thigh lift involves tightening and lifting the medial thigh tissue to improve the contour of the upper legs. The ideal candidates for this surgery are in good health and have realistic expectations of the procedure. During your initial consultation, Dr. Baker will analyze your anatomy and goals to determine the best surgical plan tailored to your needs.
Inner thigh lift patients are likely to experience some bruising and swelling around the treatment area. During the first two weeks of recovery, Dr. Baker will provide personal, in-office care every two to three days. Most patients can resume their daily activities one week after surgery, but exercise and strenuous activities must be avoided for at least four weeks.
Dr. Baker is careful to place all inner thigh lift incisions in discreet locations to reduce the possibility of developing visible scars. Scars also tend to fade and blend into the surrounding tissue over time.
The exact cost of your inner thigh lift surgery will depend on the extent of correction required, surgical fees, and anesthesia fees. Dr. Baker will calculate an accurate price that reflects your individualized procedure during your consultation.
Inner thigh lift surgery is performed using either intravenous sedation or general anesthesia that is administered by a board-certified anesthesiologist. Dr. Baker will determine the most appropriate type of anesthetic depending on your surgical needs. Anesthesia ensures that the procedure is entirely painless, and any post-operative discomfort can be managed with oral pain relievers.
